Dancers set the stage on fire in the most-anticipated dance competition of 2018, and the premier dance competition in the Philippines. What else are we talking about but the All The Way Up Dance Competition Finals!
They say “You’ve got to be in it to win it.” And that’s what the All The Way Up Dance Competition dancers exactly did. Especially when they execute their pieces with a fiery passion, claiming the center stage in the All The Way Up Finals.
Yep, the performances were intense, and you would have to be insanely talented to pull-off the dance moves we’ve seen at the All The Way Up Dance Competition 2018 finals! And we’ve got a hot recap right here for you.
Last Sunday (Oct. 21, 2018) the most-awaited ALL THE WAY UP GRAND FINALS for 2018 finally happened. So friends, families, and even fans gathered at the Meralco Theater to witness one of the hottest events in the Metro.
And now’s the time to revisit what went down last weekend!
The event was hosted by our very own Pring siblings, Joyce and Victor.
While Joyce was gorgeous and vibrant; Victor had his charming demeanor. It was A LOT of fun seeing them upstage.
The All the Way Up Dance Competition finals 2018 was judged by three fine gentlemen, recurring judges from passed Legs:
- Kenjhons Serrano
- Lawrence ‘Rockboi’ Chua; and last but not the least
- the leader of Rockwell, Rhemuel ‘Dj Loonyo’ Lunio
And all three of these handsome young men took the stage, with their individual performances in between ATWU (and As We Proceed, Rockwell’s 3rd Annual Dance Concert)!
And much like the previous Rounds of ATWU, the event was filled with surprises like freebies AND celebrity guest judges!
Who are the All The Way Up Dance Competition Finals 2018 celebrity judges? Oh just these three:
- Ella Cruz
- Julian Trono; and
- AC Bonifacio
We welcome these dance pros to the table as they help evaluate each crew, that showed off their immense talents on stage. And yep, they make quite a team! So of course the audience couldn’t wait to see them perform under the spotlight.
Catch the sizzling impromptu dance number by Julian and Ella! (Video coming soon)

Inspiring us with a powerful message executed in such complicated movements, these contestants had made their mark on the stage.
